Military MBA Launches Leaders to Lawyers, Connecting Military Leaders with Nation's Best Law Schools
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After building a successful education resource network in business, Military MBA is once again leading the way to help military officers and enlisted leaders become lawyers by launching LeaderstoLawyers.net. Using a website and collateral information in targeted distribution channels, Leaders to Lawyers will meet the growing demand among military students to identify programs, funding and resources for those most interested in pursuing a law degree.
Thanks to $78 billion in funding made possible by the New GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program, law school is now more attainable for officers and enlisted personnel who have a law degree in their sights. As a result, Military MBA has experienced growing interest and demand for law school information among its student network. As Army officer Lieutenant Dan Linge observed, "With the New 9/11 GI Bill being offered to many officers who were previously ineligible under the old Bill, I believe the number of military personnel interested in studying law will rise."
Leaders to Lawyers represents a significant opportunity for law schools to broaden their exposure in proven military channels and seek greater diversity and ethical leadership among their student bodies. The military represents one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse student populations in the world. Through national service, officers have practiced and proven their leadership, possess critical-thinking skills and have an unparalleled appreciation for upholding the law. All of which makes them qualified candidates for law school.
With an opportunity to increase demand for quality students who are underrepresented, and various programs for students to choose from, law schools will have to enhance marketing and recruitment of candidates to build reputation and drive more enrollments within the military.
Already, a number of law schools have joined the Leaders to Lawyers network to help accomplish this. “Loyola University Chicago School of Law is delighted to participate in Leaders to Lawyers,” said Assistant Dean Pamela A. Bloomquist. “We welcome military officers who bring an abundance of talent and public service to law schools.”
Law schools who are interested in becoming a part of the Leaders to Lawyers network can contact Greg Eisenbarth at 435-649-2190 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Prospective military students can receive free resources and services by visiting the site at www.leaderstolawyers.net. A complimentary law school admissions survey conducted with military students is also available upon request.
